9780415812887: Cultural Criminology (Critical Concepts in Criminology)

Cultural Criminology is a theoretical, methodological, and interventionist approach to the study of crime and deviance that places criminality and its control in the context of culture; that is, it views crime and the agencies and institutions of crime control as cultural products―as creative constructs. Cultural criminologists focus relentlessly on the continuous generation of meaning around interaction: rules created, rules broken, a constant interplay of moral entrepreneurship, political innovation, and transgression. Indeed, Cultural Criminology is now a well-established―if heterogeneous and contentious―field of study. The work of cultural criminologists supports numerous international journals, regional organizations, and global conferences. As the field continues to flourish as never before, this new title from Routledge, edited by a distinguished scholar with an international reputation, meets the need for an authoritative, one-stop reference work to make sense of the wide range of approaches, theories, and concepts that have informed Cultural Criminology.

In four volumes, the collection assembles the best and most influential contributions made by cultural criminologists from around the world. The gathered works cover not only the history and antecedents of Cultural Criminology and cutting-edge theories, but also explore a variety of research methods used by leading scholars in the field and the rich data generated by their rigorous empirical work.

With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Cultural Criminology is an essential work of reference. The collection will be particularly useful as a database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. It will also be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar―and sometimes overlooked―texts. For researchers, students, and policy-makers, it is an essential one-stop research and pedagogic resource.

About the Author:

Keith J. Hayward is Professor of Criminology at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. 

Review:

This is not just a book on the present state and possible prospects of our understanding of crime, criminals and our responses to both. However greatly the professional criminologists might benefit from the authors' illuminating insights and the new cognitive vistas their investigations have opened, the impact of this book may well stretch far beyond the realm of criminology proper and mark a watershed in the progress of social study as such. This book, after all, brings into the open the irremediable unclarity, endemic contentiousness and the resulting frailty of the line dividing deviance from the norm of social life - that line being simultaneously a weapon and the prime stake in the construction and servicing of social order. Professor Zygmaut Bauman Cultural criminology has been written about and discussed at length in criminology circles over the last five years -- including by the well-known trio of Ferrell, Hayward and Young -- but this is their best work to date on this fascinating approach and its significance. Beautifully written and superbly conceived, with illustrations and examples that combine theory and practice across a range of disciplines, Cultural Criminology should be read by anyone - academics and smart readers alike - interested in crime, media, culture and social theory. Bravo to Ferrell, Hayward and Young on a tour de force that is at once cool and classic! Cultural Criminology will influence the field for a very long time to come. Professor Lynn Chancer,Hunter College and the Graduate Centre An invitation indeed. The cultural criminology project described by Jeff Ferrell, Keith Hayward and Jock Young in this remarkable book will surely inspire many students of crime and crime control to accept their invitation and join the movement. The book comes at precisely the right time, as a powerful synthesis of a set of ideas, research practices, and political sentiments that have energized an expanding network of criminological researchers during the last two decades...no one can fail to be impressed by the skill and energy they have brought to this effort. With their remarkable grasp of the intricate details of contemporary cultural life and a narrative style that expresses the distinctive energy and flow of the late modern era, the book's authors demonstrate cultural criminology's purchase on the world of crime and transgression in the 21st century... this book represents by far the most comprehensive examination of this emerging criminological perspective...a key text in the development of cultural criminology. Stephen LyngCarthage College, USA Cultural criminology is still developing and this book, and the work that has developed in the cultural criminology tradition, has reenergised criminology and brought the offender back into the picture. This picture is vivid, energetic and passionate. Craig WebberUniversity of Southampton, UK This resource provides an excellent textbook for those teaching cultural criminology as a module. Its use of vignettes, photographs and the novel way of highlighting films of interest at the end of each chapter provide a resource useful for teachers and students alike. One is left with a sense of optimism and an enthusiastic taste in the mouth. This book is a pleasure to read in no small way due to the humour of Ferrell, Hayward and Young in (a) pointing out the absurdities of the discipline and (b) suggesting a refreshing alternative. Highly recommended reading. Dr. Matt LongNottingham Trent University
